the fourth of july: I love Independence Day...it is my most favorite day of the year. I love America and the the ideals it represents. I also love fireworks...a lot, they are pretty much my favorite thing. These are some of my favorite quotes that represent what being an American means to me... "Patriotism is easy to understand in America - it means looking out for yourself by looking out for your country." ~Calvin Coolidge. "From the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire, let freedom ring. From the mighty mountains of New York, let freedom ring. From the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania, let freedom ring ... Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill." - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. "Four freedoms: The first is freedom of speech and expression - everywhere in the world. The second is freedom of everyone to worship God in his own way, everywhere in the world. The third is freedom from want . . . everywhere in the world. The fourth is freedom from fear . . . anywhere in the world." -Franklin D. Roosevelt "Our country is not the only thing to which we owe our allegiance. It is also owed to justice and to humanity. Patriotism consists not in waving the flag, but in striving that our country shall be righteous as well as strong." ~James Bryce................................... God Bless America
